I fell in love with Symbian Belle the first time I saw it in a leaked video a few months back.
So when my friend, Jade from German-based SymbianWorld, told me last week that he was flying to Hong Kong to witness the official media unveiling of the latest version of Symbian, I couldn't help but wish that I was also invited. You all know how much I love Nokia.
But, oh well. Next time, maybe. Who knows. :)
At least, Nokia Conversations was kind enough to upload the keynote presentation videos on Youtube for everyone to see. Let's watch them together, TP Friends! :)
The first part shows Colin Giles, Nokia's EVP of Sales, explaining the context of the announcements (, mentioning that the Philippines is the Texting Capital of the World among other things) and showing the audience a bit of Nokia's gorgeous new phones Nokia 600, 700 and 701.
Nokia 701 running Symbian Belle. Yes, it looks a lot like Nokia C7.
And OMG. 12-23 is my birthday! Is this some kind of sign from God?
The second shows Heikki Koivu, VP of Nokia in China, giving a demo of Symbian Belle, NFC Technology and Nokia's new Essence Earphones.
Symbian Belle looks hot, don't you think? Can't wait to give it a hands-on!
That's it for now, TP Friends. I'll post separate entries on Nokia 600, 700 and 701 complete with TechPinas Smartphone Technical Specifications Table (TSTST) as well as another Symbian Belle demo video from Nokia soon.
